premier north carolina wedding planner

The full wedding budget for clients that choose this package is on average $400.00 per person.

To start we will have a discussion about your investment, style, and expectations. From there I will present carefully chosen vendors to you that I already know, love, and trust, and that specifically fit your individual aesthetic.

Once we lock in your major vendors, I will then create a custom blueprint that will showcase all creative decisions so that we can move on to booking vendors that can help us pull off our unique design.

During our time together, I will assist you in booking room blocks, creating and delivering guest welcome bags, provide guidance on obtaining your marriage license, and so much more.

Once your wedding weekend is here I will help direct a 1 hour rehearsal, and then on the day-of my team and I will be present from the moment your first vendor arrives until the last one leaves.

We will kick it all off with a conversation about your budget, style, and expectations. Within the first 4-8 weeks of planning, I will share with you carefully chosen vendors that fit within those categories. Once we have your vendor team booked and you have a clear plan for moving forward, I will step away and let you take over in communicating with your vendor team to articulate any preferences you have in regards to your design and esthetic.

Once we reach 60 days out, I will come back into the picture to help bring you home strong. We will schedule a final walkthrough to discuss layout, timeline, and any other important details that I need to be aware of.

I will take over communication with your vendor team, direct a 1 hour rehearsal, and provide coordination up to 10 hours on the event day.

"We couldn't have executed our wedding without Sarah! Hiring a wedding planner was without a doubt the #1 BEST thing we spent money on! As a bride you already have so many things to juggle, throughout the planning process, so having Sarah around to take the burden off of our shoulders and help with big and little decisions made it so much more enjoyable and less stressful. She is trustworthy and creative!"

"Sarah doesn't let anything get in her way of achieving the vision and dreams you have for your big day."


"It was so helpful to have her recommendations, creative vision, and vendor connections. We were blown away by how smoothly everything flowed on our wedding day, and by how perfectly she was able to bring our vision to life. It was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined!
